Last year Panasonic and Fuji made a surprising (and big) buzz with their joint organic sensor development. But since then we didn’t hear anything new about it. Now Fujirumors got word from their sources that the Panasonic-Fuji developed organic sensor still has some issues like “too much battery drain & problems to find a proper processor” and “too much heat being generated“.
On paper the new Organic sensor has the following advantages over conventional sensors:
1) it has only 1/6 of the thickness of the current sensors
2) Increased Dynamic range of 88dB
3) 1,2 ISO stops more sensitive
4) range of incident angles of 60 degrees, efficiently utilizing light entering at an angle for faithful color reproduction with no color mixing. It also gives greater flexibility in lens designs, facilitating the reduction of overall camera size.
Now let’s see when this sensor is coming for real. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too much time :(
